9 Things To Look Forward To In Entertainment This 2022

What are the things you're looking forward to in entertainment this 2022?

Can't imagine what our lives would be like if in the middle of this p a n d e m i c, Hollywood isn't here to entertain us. 

God bless Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime, and all other streaming sites. 

I'm forever thankful for the entertainment industry!

What have you been binge-watching or listening to lately? 

I have a few. 

Most of them I've already finished (in one seating!). So I'm really looking forward to more of these shows, albums, and movies this year.

9 Things to Look Forward to in Entertainment This 2022 


1. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 4

Set in the late 1950s, this series follows the story of Miriam "Midge" Maisel. 

A doting and supportive wife, mother, stubborn but loving daughter, and a woman who's trying to break the mold of women during her time.

Why I love it:

I love Midge's quick wit, sense of humor, and resilience.

I love how she's naturally funny and doesn't let men, her family, the industry, or society stereotyping scare her from pursuing her passion. 

I love how she stands up for herself, even if that means ruffling a lot of feathers.

And Tony Shalhoub! 

From Mr. Monk to Midge's dad, his comedic timing is notable.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is another Amy Sherman-Palladino masterpiece that's impossible not to love.

The 4th season will be released on February 18, 2022, on Amazon Prime

Looking forward to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2 this 2022


2. The Great Season 3

This dramedy satire is about Catherine the Great's journey from an outsider to the longest-ruling female monarch in Russia.

It changed my view about period dramas. 

Why I love it:

Another series that's about a woman's rise to power and strength of character. 

I love her eagerness to change the rotten system and push for basic rights like proper education despite everyone looking at her like she's a big joke.

Even when she's feeling like she doesn't belong and with almost everyone betraying her, she pushed on.

Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult are both amazing for the roles.

I love how they both slowly realized that they love each other.

There's no release date yet for season 3 but Elle Fanning posted a teaser video on her Instagram.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of Peter's (Nicholas) character development.

Huzzah!

Looking forward to The Great Season 2 this 2022


3. Bridgerton Season 2

The Bridgerton series is based on a collection of eight novels written by Julia Quinn. It's about the eight siblings of the powerful Bridgerton family finding their way in life and finding love.

Why I love it:

Am I the only one who wished Daphne Bridgerton ended up with the prince instead of the duke?

I get it though. Good girl meets bad boy love story really sells.

And in the end, I love how the duke realized that his love for Daphne was more important than the grudge he was holding.

I love the colorful dresses too---except those of the Featherington's. 

My favorite is Eloise Bridgerton. 

She couldn't care less about being social and her debut. Another lady who doesn't want to conform to society and be her own self.

The mystery behind Lady Whistledown's true identity adds to the excitement of the show. 

I'm usually able to guess but this one, well, I didn't see that coming.

Bridgerton Season 2 will premiere on 25 March 2022 on Netflix.

Looking forward to The Bridgerton Season 2 this 2022


4. Only Murders in the Building Season 2

OMITB is a mystery-comedy about three strangers living in an affluent Upper West Side apartment building.

They bonded over their shared obsession with a true-crime podcast they got to use in solving their neighbor's murder.

Why I love it:

I love a mystery where just when you thought you knew who did it and how the story went, there's another plot twist that will leave you clueless again.

Steve Martin and Martin Short are Hollywood treasures. I love how they can effortlessly make you laugh. 

I love that you'd be surprised where the comedy would come in. You'd be so hooked with the story and suddenly there's a line that will crack you up.

Selena is lovable as always.

Season 2 of Only Murders in the Building could arrive as early as mid-2022.

Looking forward to Only Murders in the Building Season 2 this 2022


5. House of the Dragon

Finally, we'd get to see the story of the House Targaryen during the civil war that took place about 300 years before the Game of Thrones.

I've not read the book but because I like GOT series (except for the last 3 seasons maybe), I am looking forward to learning more about Daenyres' ancestors and who among them was mad or was great. Or both?

There's no release date yet but House of the Dragon will likely premiere in the back half of 2022.

Looking forward to House of the Dragon Season 1 this 2022


6. The Batman

Batman faces one of his nemeses The Riddler and discovers corruption that connects to his own family.

Why I love it:

He may not be the most lovable DC superhero, but I like how despite not having superpowers, Batman makes do of what he has---wealth and wit---to save his crime-riddled home city, Gotham.

He is still fighting his own demons from his dark past but he's there to defend and protect those who can't fight for themselves.

I'm curious as to how Robert Pattinson's Batman would be different than the previous ones.

The Batman is due in US cinemas on March 4, 2022.

Looking forward to The Batman this 2022


7. Shadow and Bone Season 2

A young adult fantasy adventure novel adaptation by Leigh Bardugo, Shadow and Bone series is about Alina Starkov. 

She didn't know that she possesses a powerful ability that could destroy what their people has feared since time immemorial and change her otherwise ordinary life.

Why I love it:

I love a good escape from reality and Shadow and Bone offers that.

From magical creatures to supernatural abilities, it can take you to places you've never imagined.

I love the bond between Alina and Mal. 

I'm excited to know if neophytes like them could defeat someone as adept as the Darkling.

It reminds me of the usual heroes who were forced to stand up against evil like Harry Potter, Katniss Everdeen, and Tris Prior.

Season 2 of Shadow and Bone will be released by the end of 2022 or early 2023.

Looking forward to Shadow and Bone Season 2 this 2022


8. Taylor Swift's next album 

Fearless and Red Taylor's versions were on repeat on my phone when she released them in 2021. 

As always, TayTay's secretive when it comes to releasing her music but she might be dropping her versions of Reputation or 1989 anytime this 2022.

Reputation is my favorite album so I'm really excited for her to remake it.

Will there be another bomb in these albums like Mr. Perfectly Fine and All Too Well 10 minutes version? 

I don't know but with Taylor Swift's genius, anything is possible.

Looking forward to Taylor Swift's new album this 2022


9. Marvel movies and shows

I wish that Marvel would never stop producing movies and shows---even with critics saying they're destroying the movie industry.

We need a little bit of inspiration and hope especially at this time and I think superhero movies give us that.

Moon Knight, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, She-Hulk, The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special are on my list.

Life may be hard because of this v i r u s but I'm glad that we live in the superhero movies era. 

The inner child in me rejoices. 

Looking forward to Marvel movie and shows this 2022
